Epitope Name SL9
Species (MHC/HLA human(A*02)

Variant Details

Showing 1 of 6 variants.

Variant ID.  1834
Epitope Seq.  SLYNTVATL
Variant Seq.  SLhNTVATL
Mutations Y/H
Epitope Location Y3H
HXB2 Location Y79H
Mutation Type E: escape documented in this paper
TCR: TCR related mutation
Method Sequence, Surface Plasmon Resonance, TCR binding
Note This unusual SL9 escape variant was recognized poorly by patient 868 CTL, suggesting that viruses with this mutation would escape wild type TCR recognition. High affinity a11b6 TCR, however, did bind this variant well enough by surface plasmon resonance to predict recognition.
